    The live trading videos are not being updated. Is there a reason for this?

      Hi that’s strange as they are working fine from what I can see. What is it exactly that you say is not working?

    Hi Charlie,

    Have a general question regarding the potential US interest rate hike.With a hike seen as being bad for stocks so would expect to see US indices going down but how would you see this effecting European indices like the DAX? Would it hold true that strong dollar would lead to weaker Euro and subsequently good for European stocks?

    Many thanks,

      Hi Ali,

      That’s a good point made and in relative terms it may out perform in the situation you discuss but outperforming doesn’t necessarily mean going up as usually we would expect weakness to follow globally but something like the dax may still out perform in that situation, but just not be as weak.

    Could you just explain the amounts and pips you are buying, since I am getting a little confused ? (since I thought, example: £10 per pip then if I go long and the market moves 20 pips long, then it’s £10×20=200)

    But what I watching is amount: 100,000 or 50,000 for only 300-1,000 profit on some occasions in you’re videos

      Hi James,

      I’m not spreadbetting on those, I’m trading in Forex lot sizes. 1 lot is 100,000 and that is $10 per pip (£6 per point). So if you see me put 4 buys in of 100,000 that’s $40 per pip in total or roughly £24 per pip. So if you see me trading at 50,000 sizes then each one is $5 per pip or roughly £3 per pip. So from that you can work out the sizes depending on which video you’re watching.

      hope that helps

    Hi Charlie.
    I watched a Tip TV video recently where you mentioned ” some of the bank traders I know”.
    Is it useful for a retail trader to know the bank traders or do they trade in a way that is completely different to the retail crowd ( due to their relatively massive position sizes).
    Or do bank traders trade just like the retail ones only with bigger zeroes in their positions?

      Bank traders trade much like any other successful trader so there’s no real secret. They tend to have bigger stops than the average retail trader and will sit on their trades for longer.
